Product Description

Philip Schaff (1819-1893) was a German Reformed church historian, born in Switzerland. He was educated at Tubingen, Halle, and Berlin, and later took a position as Professor of Church History at Union Theological Seminary, New York. Schaff bases his work on the premise that church history in order to be valid and valuable must deal with three factors: 1) God through Christ, 2) man as a responsible moral creature, and 3) Satan as a real being employing the Anti-Christ as his agent at the end of time.

Schaff begins his history with an examination of the preparation for Christianity in Judaism and the heathen world and the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The 8 volume series concludes with a general introduction to modern church history and a thorough analysis of the productive period of the Reformation, tracing the Protestant movement in Germany and Switzerland to the close of the 16th century. There are footnotes, charts, maps and each volume contains its own alphabetical index.

Schaff taught church history at German Reformed Seminary in Mercersburg, Penn., and Union Theological Seminary in New York. He was involved in the formation of the Evangelical Alliance, the revision of the English Bible (the Revised Version), and the Alliance of the Reformed Churches. Schaff was founder of the American Society of Church History.

    Philip Schaff was a master of the history of Christianity, with very few competitors. His command of the material is unsurpassed. If you want a full scope history with detail when it's necessary, if you can handle history that also explains the history of ideas (doctrine), then this set will serve you well. When I pick up Schaff, I can get lost in his compelling narrative for hours. I also appreciate hearing someone who wasn't from the 20th/21st century explain events from the past - he doesn't share our biases, which makes him refreshing.

    This is the best book of Church History I ever read. I dreamed to have it when I was student. Now I was very thankful to God to see the discount and the good price. So I decided to buy it. I started to read it and I find it very good and useful. I recommend it to everybody who love Church history.

    Phillip Schaff is a great writer and his knowledge of church history is extensive. The volumes can be purchased very cheap as well-less than 10$ a volume-hardback. It is a great deal.

    This is a classic work, a must for the minister and those who wish to know Church History. The bainding is very attractive, will look well in one's library. Other works will add to it, but none can replace it.
